This book is a history of one part of the Body of Christ known as Calvary 
Evangelical Lutheran Church, a congregation of the North Carolina Synod of 
the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America located in Concord, North Carolina. 
This history attempts to record the story of committed people of faith from 1913 
to 1997. 

In compiling such a history, one must do the hard work of research utilizing 
all of the existing records possible. Unfortunately, not all records of the 
congregation remain in existence nor are all existing records complete. A diligent 
search for all records that could be found was made. Apparently missing were 
a number of records, as well as all directories and Sunday bulletins through the 
late 1940's. 

Calvary congregation is truly indebted to Bernard William Cruse, Jr., 
who took on this project single-handedly, volunteering long hours doing the research 
and entering into the computer all of the data for this work Simply said, this 
book would not exist without the faithful work of "Bill" Cruse. It certainly was 
a labor of love. 

A special word of thanks to Mrs. Marge Cruse who graciously permitted 
much family time to be used in the writing of this history. 

As of this writing, Calvary congregation is poised to write the next major 
chapter in her history, a second re-location! This next chapter prompted the 
development of this history to the present day in order to record the past as a 
foundation to the future. 

Many people have assisted in editing materials and they are thankfully 
acknowledged here. Some of them are: Iris Arey, Betty and Harold Black, Mary 
and Fess Black, Bette and Harry Blume, Jack and Martha Dayvault, Herb and 
Hazel Eckenrhode, Nancy Haney, Maxine Hatley, John and Bernice Howard, 
Margaret Noblitt, Gary and Susan Norris, Tom Ramseur, Ben Shue, Edith Sides, 
Alice Ray Sloop, Nell Tarlton, Bill Wiles and Ruth Wynnk. 

As pastor of this congregation at this writing, we are all thankful to 
Almighty God for His wise guidance and shared vision for the future. May we 
be willing to follow and serve, t 

The Reverend Dr. John E. Boyd, Jr.

"But the angel said to the women, 'Do not be afraid, for I know that you 
seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, he has risen!'" 

That glorious event of Christ's resurrection from the dead is the driving 
force for Calvary Church, as well as congregations throughout the land! We 
have been gifted by the great gift of faith. Faith that Jesus Christ came, suffered, 
died and rose again that we might live forever. Frankly, that is the best news 
on the planet. And that is the unique story that Calvary Church has been telling 
since 1913. 

The congregation has beautifully acted out their faith by moving to a 
second location and now planning to move to a third location. Moving a 
congregation from one place to another is not easy. It has been possible through 
the great desire of the family of faith at Calvary Church to "better tell" the story 
and to act out their faith by being as available as possible to witness to that glorious 

As I think about the history of Calvary Church I become excited about 
the future. I reflect, in a personal way, on how the family of Calvary Chuch 
received me as a new pastor in June of 1972, and while I did not know a great 
deal about ministry, only 24 years old, the people at Calvary Church taught me, 
through their love and grace, that God inspires and leads. Calvary Church will 
always be a special place for me! So I thank God for the ministry of Calvary 
Church in the past, I rejoice in the present ministries underway, and I am delighted 
as you look toward the future with a new facility in a growing area telling that 
old, old story that never changes, that we are justified by God's grace through 

May God bless you in these days and thank you for allowing me to be 
a part of this wonderful publication, t

When our German forebears arrived in North Carolina, most of them 
after a sojourn in Pennsylvania, they brought with them their 
prayerbooks and bibles, as well as their strong Lutheran heritage. 
Almost immediately, as soon as they could get in some crops and get a roof over 
their heads, they went about establishing schools and churches. By the early 
1740s, along with the German Reformed, Lutherans began their worship in a 
union church which they called the Dutch Creek Meeting House or Dutch Buffalo 
Creek Church. Today these two churches are still extant as Bethel Bear Creek 
United Church of Christ and New Bethel Evangelical Lutheran Church. By 1745 
they had formed St. John's Lutheran Church in Cabarrus (then Mecklenburg) 
County and Organ Lutheran Church in Rowan County. For over twenty years 
they had no regular ministers, depending on itinerant ministers passing through 
the area and on layperson services. Shortly before the Revolution, these two 
churches collaborated in sending two men, Christopher Layrle from St. John's 
and Christopher Rintelmann from Organ, to Germany to secure a minister and 
school teacher and bring them back to North Carolina to attend to their scholastic 
and spiritual needs. They were successful in obtaining the services of Reverend 
Adolph Nussmann and Mr. Johann Gottfried Arends. Before much time had 
passed, however, Reverend Nussmann realized that there was more spiritual work 
than could be attended by one minister, so he petitioned and received permission 
from the German diocese to ordain Mr. Arends as a minister as Arends had all 
the training and met all the qualifications for ordination. At that point, Reverend 
Nussmann took over the charge of St. John's and Reverend Arends took over 
Organ. 1 

By the time of the arrival of Rev. Nussmann and Mr. Arends, a Union 
Church had been formed about six miles from St. John's with German Reformed 
and Lutheran members. On August 21, 1768 that congregation had a service 
performed by Reverend Samuel Suther, noted as the founder of the German 
Reformed (Now United Church of Christ). Attending that service was Governor 
Tryon, the King's governor of North Carolina. That congregation is believed 
to have eventually become Cold Water Lutheran Church, to which, in 1772, was 
deeded land by Adam Bowers with Martin Phifer as trustee. About the year 1775, 
"Mr. Nussmann also served, at first, a congregation with an admixture of members 
of the German Reformed, whose church was located six miles southwest of that 
on Buffalo Creek." 2 

On Sunday, June 4, 1843, Reverend W. G. Harter of Cold Water Lutheran 
Church organized a new church in Concord, St. James Evangelical Lutheran with 
"about sixty members", most of whom came from Cold Water. This was the 
first Lutheran Church officially organized in Concord, and from which many 
other Lutheran churches came. A lot was purchased on East Corbin (now Corban) 
Street January 23, 1 845 and a schoolhouse and church were built and a cemetery 
established. By the year 1880, having outgrown these facilities, they purchased 
(October 27, 1 880) the lot at the corner of South Union and Corbin (now Corban) 
Streets and built a new church. 3 From the rapid growth at St. James, a mere thirteen 
years later, their pastor, Rev. W. G. Campbell, started a new church, St. Andrews 
Evangelical Lutheran, to take some of the western city members from the load 
at St James. 4 St. Andrews later became a parish sister church of Calvary, t

And when they were come to the place, which 
is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and 
the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the 
other on the left. (Luke 23:33) 5 

By the year 1910 it was very apparent that the Locke Mill area of "North" 
Concord needed a new church. The Reverend Dr. Charles Peter 
MacLaughlin, of St. James Lutheran Church in Concord, began holding 
services in a small frame building on a corner of the Locke Cotton Mills property 
sometime in 1912 every other Sunday afternoon. 

On March 30, 1913, Calvary Lutheran Church was formally organized 
with 36 Charter Members. Charter members are noted with an asterisk in the 
Roll of Members later in this book. 

Morning Service was held at 1 1 o'clock according to arrangements, from 
the records in the original church book. The Liturgical Service was conducted 
by Rev. Silas A. Zimbeck, pastor of St. Andrew's. The sermon was preached 
by Rev. Robert L. Patterson, D.D., pastor of St. Mark's, Charlotte and president 
of the Home Mission Board of the United Synod. 

Sunday School was held at 2:30 P.M., followed by Divine Service at 
3:30. Remarks were made by Dr. Patterson, Pastors Zimbeck and MacLaughlin. 
The Charter Members of Calvary Church were then formally received. 

The Congregation proceeded to elect officers, in accordance with the 
Constitution and resolution of the March 16th meeting. Elected were: Elders, 
G. W. Petrea, one year; H. B. Wilkinson, two years; Deacons, J. Claude Ketner 
and J. W. Roberts, one year; J. R. Shive and B. L. Roberts, two years. These 
elected elders and deacons were duly installed by Pastor MacLaughlin. 

At the first council meeting on March 31, H. B. Wilkinson was elected 
Vice-President, J. R. Shive was elected Recording Secretary, G. W. Petrea was 
elected Benevolence Fund Treasurer and B. L. Roberts was elected Current Fund 

At the May 23, 1913, Regular Council Meeting, Mr. (Later Rev.) Clarence 
E. Norman, a ministerial student, was appointed to assist Rev. MacLaughlin for 
three months at a salary of $25 per month. Norman served intermittently until 
1915 when the Rev. Bergman S. Dasher was called as regular minister. 

At the Regular Council Meeting on October 30, 1913, communications 
with St. Andrews were started initially regarding establishment of a union between 
the two churches into a parish (although the name or tide of "parish" is not used). 
Pastors Silas A. Zimbeck of St. Andrews and C. P. MacLaughlin of Calvary drew 
up By-laws, t

Concord Parish 

The Calvary/St. Andrews parish continued as such through Rev. Bergman 
S. Dasher's pastorate as well as through the pastorates of Revs. Charles 
H. Day and M. L. Kester until 1928, when Calvary withdrew from the 
parish and became self-supporting. 

On June 6, 1916 J. R. Shive commented in the minute book that because of the 
fact that the book was not in his hands for the past two years, no regular minutes 
were recorded and the notes to the council meetings had been lost. "But the 
Council Meetings was [sic] well attended and Good Reports all the while, there 
has Been Some Important Business transacted that there is no Account given." 
On June 18, 1916, J. R. Shive was given a certificate of transfer [destination not 
entered] and J. C. McEachern elected to serve out his term. 

The October 15, 1916 note the first council reference to "the lot in 
question," undoubtedly the lot on which their first church was built. Discussion 
continued through all meeting notes for months, and the February, 1917 Council 
actually named the lot on the "N.E. comer of East McGill and Spring Street." 
Finally, at the May 20, 1917 meeting, it is noted that "the Locke Cotton Mills 
Co. have given Calvary E. L. Church the lot and will make the transfer sometime 

In the minute book only the month and year are written, except for 
September, 1917, and with that exception there are no entries from July, 1917 
until April, 1918. In August, 1918 B. L. Roberts, G. W. Petrea and H. B. 
Wilkinson were elected trustees and a building committee was named with the 
same three. 

Finally, in July, 1919, council ordered the building committee and Pastor 
Charles Howard Day to advertise for bids on the new church. 

Charlotte architect Louis Asbury designed two Cabarrus County churches 
built during the 1920s — St. James Evangelical and Reformed in Mt. Pleasant and 
Calvary Lutheran's original church in Concord. Both are brick sanctuaries erected 
by congregations with fewer members than the downtown Concord churches. 
St. James Reformed displays typical Gothic details including buttressed and 
crenelated towers and lancet arched windows, but the bracketed eaves and exposed 
rafters of its gabled side entrance porch introduce a hint of the bungalow style, 
an idiom rarely seen in church architecture. The design for Calvary Lutheran 
Church in Concord lacks the eclectic note Asbury introduced at St. James, but 
exhibits more Gothic details, most notably the facade window, a four-light, four- 
centered-arched opening with intersecting tracery and fine stained glass, and the 
molded wooden trusses that support the roof. 6 

In August, 1919, a bid for $15,200.00 was rejected for the construction 
of the church and new bids were solicited not to exceed $10,000.00. By June 
of 1920, a Mr. B. G. Ratledge and a Mr. Nail appeared before the council with 

4 Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church 

an estimate of $20,000.00 to build the church. Apparently, these men got the 
job, for in subsequent meetings payments were approved to them for work and 

In September, 1920, Pastor Day resigned and the pulpit was vacant until 
January, 1921 when Calvary was successful in obtaining Rev. M. L. Kester. 
At the congregational meeting on November 28, 1920, even a three-month old 
baby held up his hand to make the call to Rev. Kester unanimous. 

Apparently, there was some animosity when Rev. Day left, for in January, 
1921, after Rev. Kester took over, he was instructed to contact President of the 
Synod Rev. J. L. Morgan to try to retrieve some of Calvary's property from Rev. 
Day. By May, 192 1, a previous order was rescinded placing a memorial window 
in the new church in honor of Rev. Day, and the congregation voted to place 
a window in honor of Rev. Kester. 

On July 19, 1921 council motion prevailed to pay Mr. B. G. Ratledge 
in full and release him from his contract on building the church. 

The first service in the new church was held November 20, 1921, with 
the Rev. M. L. Kester presiding, according to the parish register. 

In 1921 Calvary completed its own building at the corner of North McGill 
and Buffalo Streets. In October, 1927, Calvary gave a right-of-way to extend 
Spring St. Northward from Buffalo. Now the church's location became the corner 
of North Spring and Buffalo Streets. 

From the time of its organization until December, 1922, deacons and 
elders were elected on a yearly basis based on the time of organization. In the 
late part of 1922 this was changed to an annual calendar basis and has remained 
since. Sunday School officers were then, and are still appointed in September 
to relate to a regular school year. 

By September, 1923, Calvary evidently was feeling pressure of land needs 
when the congregation authorized council to purchase the J. V. Stiller property 
adjacent to the church. This was promptly done at a price of $3,300.00, which 
the church borrowed from the [Concord] Building and Loan. 

First mention of the Lutheran Brotherhood, the men's organization, was 
made in January, 1925 when they undertook to provide ushers for the services. 
In previous minutes, council had directly "elected" ushers for the services. (See 
section on "Men's Organizations.) t 

Concord, North Carolina — 1913-1996 

Original Calvary Church Building 

On Our Own 

On April 15, 1928, Rev. M. L. Kester resigned, and later that month at 
a congregational meeting, it was unanimously agreed to call Rev. F. M. 
Speagle. Fortunately, Rev. Speagle accepted the call and Calvary's pulpit 
was open only until he started his ministry September 15th. 

By 1930, according to council minutes, Calvary was beginning to have 
quite a few problems with the church building, completed in 192 1. References 
were made about roof leaks and floor sleepers and their repair. Even before then, 
the congregation had to replace the furnace with a "parlor heater". 

Apparently, the entire church was not completed for many years after 
occupancy, for even as late as August, 1931, council moved to "finish two more 
of the Sunday School rooms". 

Before July 10, 1932 (during the Great Depression), there were several 
instances when Calvary apparently was not too regular in making its Pastor's 
Salary, even having to borrow the money at one point on a note signed by all 
the council to pay the 1931 salary. It was not too much of a shock, then, when 
in that meeting, Rev. Speagle brought up a call he had received. The council 
left the matter in his hands, assuring him that his services had been entirely 
satisfactory, but the congregation just could not afford to keep up his salary. 
Not surprisingly, on July 15, he resigned, effective August 1. 

6 Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church 

Calvary's pulpit was vacant for almost two years, supplied by Rev. J. 
Frank Davis and others. No minutes are available from that time until January, 
1933, when Rev. J. Frank Davis was approved as interim minister. Minutes are 
almost non-existent and are entirely missing from 1934 until 1937. Rev. Glenn 
A. (Razz) Miller came to Calvary in June, 1934 and resigned in May, 1936, and 
no minutes are available during his pastorate. Rev. Gilbert B. Goodman became 
Calvary's pastor on June 11, 1936. 

Furnace and heating problems were still evident. By October, 1937, after 
selling the old furnace for 20$ per one hundred pounds, Council set Sunday, 
October 17th as the day to raise money for the new stove, and, at the next meeting, 
set aside Sunday School offerings on the third Sunday of each month for the 
stove fund. 

By 1944, apparendy the stained glass windows in the church had begun 
to give considerable trouble with leaks, and several council meetings were used 
to address the problem and seek someone to make the cure. 

In May, 1945, Pastor Goodman called a meeting of the council to investigate 
and examine the damage done to the church by termites. This issue and the 
problem of expanding the building to meet the congregation's growing needs 
were the main topics recorded in succeeding months. 

At a congregational meeting on August 5, 1945, the resignation of Rev. 
Gilbert B. Goodman, effective as of August 26th, was accepted. Pastor Goodman 
had served Calvary for over nine years, and had apparently served well with no 
dissension ever noted in council's minutes. He had been given a number of 
increases in salary, almost annually. That same evening the council met with 
Rev. J. L. Morgan, President of the North Carolina Synod, who suggested the 
name of Paul B. Cobb, a student at the Seminary from Greensboro, to succeed 
Pastor Goodman. Mr., (then, Rev.) Cobb accepted the call and was installed 
later the same year so the pulpit was vacant only a short time. During several 
Sundays before Rev. Cobb could assume the pulpit, services were conducted by 
the Rev. W. B. Aull of Landis. 

By December, 1945, not long after Pastor Cobb began his ministry, the 
congregation continued to realize that their facilities were outdated, for the council 
minutes that month remarked that the Building Fund offering was changed from 
a monthly to a weekly basis for the addition to the facilities. 

In October, 1946, at the urging of Pastor Cobb, confirmation age was 
raised from 12 to 14 years of age, as the pastor felt that 12 was not mature enough. 

Also, in December, 1946, a "Rally Day" was set for donations for the 
Building Fund, with each member urged to give a day's wages. 

In February, 1947, building expansion was still on everyone's minds as 
council voted that funds raised during Self -Denial offerings during Lent go to 

Concord, North Carolina — 1913-1996 7 

the Church Building Fund. March and April minutes indicate that active negotiation 
was being pursued with Mr. H. C. Craver relating to the construction of an 
Educational Building. In June, Mr. Graver's sketch was approved after minor 

At the May 1, 1949 meeting of council, Rev. Cobb tendered his resignation 
from Calvary's pulpit, effective July 1 5th. His resignation was accepted by the 
congregation on May 15th. At a meeting on June 12, the congregation agreed 
to call the Rev. Glenn L. Barger who accepted in August; and Pastor Barger began 
his ministry at Calvary September 1st. Supply during the brief interval between 
Rev. Cobb and Rev. Barger's ministries was done by Mr. Oscar Kenneth Knight, 
a theological student, later ordained a Lutheran minister. 

In December, 1949, council voted to give $50.00 from the Sunday School 
treasury to the Concord schools to help support a Bible teacher. 

In September, 1950, Pastor Barger notified Calvary that he felt obligated 
to offer his services to the Navy when the number of Lutherans in service warranted 
it. The time was not long in coming; early in October he announced that he had 
been ordered to report as a Chaplain, and tendered his resignation as of October 

In January, 1951, Calvary agreed to pay $200.00 annually in quarterly 
payments to its sons that were studying at the seminary to become ministers. 

The pulpit was vacant from October 15, 1950 until June 1, 1951, when 
the Rev. Walter N. Yount became pastor. 

One of Pastor Yount's first requests, and the council concurred, was that 
a previous action be rescinded and that persons be allowed to be confirmed at 
the age of 12 years instead of 14. 

By August of 1951, the building fund was active again, to the point that 
council approved that most Vesper offerings be placed there, t

A New Church 

By the fifties, Calvary's congregation and services had so over-crowded 
the original location that it had to relocate. The city of Concord had also 
grown considerably Northward. At a called meeting of the council on 
February 17, 1952, a motion was made and approved to relocate Calvary Lutheran 
Church to North Concord. This was apparently done again a week later at another 
called meeting at 10:30 a.m. on February 24th, and, at a congregational meeting 
following the 1 1:00 a.m. service, the congregation voted unanimously in favor. 

At this same congregational meeting, Pastor Yount brought forth the 
question of Reorganization of the Congregation and opening the books for Charter 
Members. A motion was made and carried to this effect. 

Rather immediately, interest was shown by a prospect in purchasing the 
church's property at Spring and Buffalo. In the minutes of March, 1952, the 
pastor and property committee were instructed to price the property, less the hut, 
at $40,000.00. 

By May, Calvary was talking to architects and beginning to plan the new 
edifice and the price was cut to $35,000.00 for the present facility. 

Congregation voted in July and September to approve plans presented 
by the church committee. 

In January, 1953, council voted to have a "For Sale" sign erected on the 
Buffalo Street church. In February, Rev. Yount reported to council that the Church 
of God and the Church of the Nazarene were interested in the church. 

After much search and debate, a new location was chosen in the area 
between Wilmar Park and Beverly Hills, near the Hospital, on Lake Concord 

On May 3, 1953 the congregation voted to award the construction contract 
for the new church to Bumgarner Construction Co., and the plumbing, heating 
and electrical contract to the L. R. Wensil Co. Enough progress had been made 
by June 15 that council authorized the first progress payment to Bumgarner, subject 
to the architect's approval, of $12,242.06, and on July 20th an additional $9,710.46. 

About this time, H. B. Wilkinson, charter member, and long-time council 
member, leader and honorary life member of the council died and left $2,000.00 
to Calvary in his will. This money was set aside by the council in August, 1953, 
until appropriate use for it could be determined. By October, the decision was 
made to purchase a Baldwin No. 5 Electronic Organ for the new church with 
these funds, and Mr. Wilkinson's son and daughter, James Wilkinson and Virginia 

Concord, North Carolina — 1913-1996 9 

Wilkinson Studdert agreed to pay the difference in memory of their father. 

In September, 1953, apparently for the first time, an Altar Guild was 
set up with Miss Dora Barnhardt as chairperson. 

Calvary's New Home on Lake Concord Road 

During the building of the new church, it was discovered that the 38-inch 
bell in the old church would not fit into the new steeple. Reverend Yount 
remembered the old bell at then-defunct Mount Pleasant Collegiate Institute where 
he had been a student thirty years before and obtained that bell for installation 
in the new Calvary building. M.P.C.I. was originally established by the North 
Carolina Synod previous to the War Between the States as Western Carolina Male 
Academy, which later became North Carolina College, then Mount Pleasant 
Collegiate Institute, all under support and direction of the North Carolina Synod. 
The bell, originally installed in the bell tower in Mount Pleasant in the 1850s 
was made by the Webster and Webb Company in Baltimore, Md. and its braces 
were made by Menally Company of West Troy, N.Y. Efforts made by Pastor 
Yount in 1953 to contact those companies were unfruitful, so they are presumed 
to have gone out of business. Financially, Calvary lost money on the deal, as 
the old M.P.C.I. bell was valued at $250.00 while the newer bell removed from 
Buffalo Street and traded was valued at $400.00, but the historic value was 

The new church, completed early in 1954 had their first services February 
28, 1954. The first recorded activity in the new church, however, occurred on 
Thursday, February 25th when Miss Miriam Teal became the bride of Mr. Ralph 

10 Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church 

Drury, Jr. three days before the official opening. Calvary received thirty-nine 
new members at that dedication service; twenty-four by letter, three by confirmation, 
two by adult baptism and ten by infant baptism. The "new" church had already 
begun to grow. 

Free Will Baptist Church held a two-week revival in the old church 
beginning April 11, 1954, and expressed some interest in renting the facility. 
Subsequently, the old church was rented to Free Will through August, and St. 
James Catholic church rented it in September. St. James Catholic church, near 
Cold Water Lutheran Church, had burned, and the congregation was at that time 
building a new church on North Union Street, two blocks away. Finally, in 
December, Calvary agreed to sell the facility to the Church of God for $ 15,000.00, 
and their old church, which they valued at another $15,000.00. The following 
June the old Church of the Valley was sold to the Church of the Nazarene for 

In February, 1955, council rescinded the action taken in February, 1952 
to reorganize the congregation. In April the council continued this thought, agreeing 
to take it to the congregation. 

In March, 1955, approval was given by council to organize a kindergarten 
if details could be worked out. 

Because the North Carolina Synod maintained a Beneficiary Aid Fund 
for ministerial students, in April, 1955, council decided to rescind previous practice 
of sending $200.00 per year to Calvary's ministerial students. 

First mention of a regular church secretary was made in the September, 
1959 council minutes, when the pastor was authorized to employ a secretary to 
be paid $1.00 per hour as needed. Apparently, all previous secretarial work had 
been done on a volunteer basis. 

Mrs. Johnsie Scott became the first woman to be nominated for the council 
of Calvary Church at the November 12, 1961 congregational meeting when she 
was nominated from the floor. It would be ten years before minutes noted the 
nomination of another woman to council, when Johnsie Scott would again be 
nominated along with Ruby St. John. 

At a cost of approximately $2,860.00, it was approved by the congregation 
in April, 1962 to have A. W. Widenhouse pave the parking lot [on the East side 
of the church], 

September 21, 1964, E. R. McKay reported to council that the parking 
lot debt had been paid in full. 

During the period 1963-65 Calvary's pastor, Rev. Walter N. Yount, also 
served as Vice-Pastor to Cross of Christ at Rimer and Trinity Churches while 
their pulpits were vacant. 

Concord, North Carolina — 1913-1996 11 

At the congregational meeting on November 12, 1967, council was increased 
from 12 to 15 members. 

In January, 1971, Calvary contracted with the Keasler Company to air- 
condition the church nave. Previously, the pastor's office had been air-conditioned 
with a through-the-wall room unit. 

The first mortgage on the church was paid in full during March, 1971. 

Mrs. Johnsie Scott was elected in November, 1971 to be the first woman 
to serve on Calvary's Church Council. 

Also, in the same month, council was read a letter of resignation from 
Pastor Walter N. Yount, effective December 31, 1971. He was appointed by 
the synod as Vice-Pastor until a new pastor could be secured. Permission was 
given Vice-Pastor Yount to remain in the parsonage until the Younts' new home 
was completed. He left his tenure at Calvary with the church in very good financial 
shape. In a statement to council in January, 1972, Pastor Yount reported a total 
church indebtedness of $7,320.26. Of this, $ 1 ,50 1 .92 was on the church, $2,8 1 8. 84 
on the parsonage and the rest on church improvements. 

At the end of January, 1972, Rev. Lonnie Karriker was appointed Vice- 
Pastor by the North Carolina Synod. 

On May 7, 1972 the congregation unanimously voted to call Leonard 
H. Bolick, a recent graduate of the Southern Seminary at Columbia as their pastor. 
Rev. Bolick accepted the call and began serving Calvary very shortly afterwards. 

On September 10, 1972, Council approved that a monthly newsletter be 
issued and mailed to all member families. 

In December, 1972 Rev. Dr. Walter N. Yount was appointed Pastor 
Emeritus of Calvary Church. 

In November, 1973, Rev. Bolick reported a net gain in membership of 
30 persons and a gain of 17 per Sunday in attendance over last year. 

In 1975, at least two significant things happened. After some twelve 
years of operation, the Calvary Kindergarten was discontinued because of the 
arrival in the public school system of a kindergarten system and discussion was 
begun on the selling of Calvary's parsonage and giving the pastor a living allowance 
to provide his own home other than a church-provided parsonage which may 
or may not suit his requirements. This was accomplished the next year, 1976. 

In May, 1979, after several years of discussion, the Organ Task Force 
proposed installing a Zimmer Pipe Organ to take the place of the organ used 
since the new church was built in 1953 that was donated by the Wilkinson family. 
At the Congregational Meeting on June 17th it was voted 87 to 7 to arrange 

12 Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church 

for the installation and financing of the organ, which was then estimated at 
$44,500.00. Immediately afterward, in August, the congregation approved the 
expenditure of an additional $6,718.74 to do extensive remodeling including 
dropping ceilings, painting, papering, and carpeting. These repairs were adjudged 
needed by the congregation by a vote of 81 to 5. 

In late 1979 lay Lectors started being used to read the lessons during 
the services, first for a three-month trial period, then permanently, and has continued 
to the present day. 

In early 1980 Social Ministry reported on the need for an emergency 
care facility (for children) and its being set up on South Spring Street. In short 
order, Calvary became one of the sponsoring congregations. In June, Covenant 
Presbyterian Church expressed interest in buying the organ to be replaced by 
the Zimmer pipe organ, but in August it was suggested that it be donated to them. 
Council approved the gift of the old organ to Covenant in March, 1981. 

On May 24, 1981 a dedicatory recital was held for the new Zimmer pipe 
organ with Dr. Stanley Scheer of Pfeiffer College as guest organist. On August 
23 the Congregation elected the first board of trustees for the Endowment Fund 
of Calvary Lutheran Church. Initial board consisted of E. R. McKay, Tom 
Ramseur, Ann Ridenhour, Brad Schiele and Richard Shaw. 

By 1982 it was known that there were serious needs not being addressed 
because of space and design limitations of the facilities, so in January, 1983 a 
"Building and Renovation" committee was established under the chairmanship 
of Leroy Coffee to forge forward with such renovation as possible. It was during 
1983 that Hospice, a program to council and aid families undergoing the terminal 
illness of one of its members, was started in Concord and originally used Calvary's 
facilities for their meetings and offices, then used these facilities through 1984, 
when they obtained space at the hospital. 

Also in 1983, Calvary purchased a long-awaited hand bell set and added 
a hand bell choir. 

After at least a year and a half of planning and fact-finding, the "Building 
and Renovation" Committee's efforts were rewarded at a June congregational 
meeting that approved a $125,000 plan for renovation. Sadly, at that same meeting, 
Pastor Leonard H. Bolick's resignation was accepted, effective Sunday, August 
19, 1984. In August the Rev. James L. Dougherty, Associate Pastor at St. James, 
was asked to serve as interim pastor for Calvary. 

Good things happened before the middle of 1985 in that all the renovations 
were completed and dedicated March 17th, and only a month later, Rev. John 
E. Boyd, Jr. was called and accepted Calvary's call to their pulpit to preach for 
the first time on June 9th. On September 7th, a surprise 80th birthday party was 
held in the Fellowship Hall and at that time it was announced that the Fellowship 
Hall would be named after Pastor Emeritus The Rev. Dr. Walter N. Yount. 

Concord, North Carolina — 1913-1996 13 

The following day, September 8th, Calvary Congregation voted to purchase 
the property on the West side of the church from Cabarrus Pediatric Clinic for 
$95,000.00 and rent them 30 parking spaces there as long as CPC remained in 
their location to the rear of that lot. 

In March, 1990, a check for $73,352.84 was presented to Calvary by 
Ralph Barnhardt, a bequest from the Frank and Carrie Barnhardt estate. Carrie 
Petrea Barnhardt, one of the Charter Members of Calvary, served for many years 
as church treasurer. Her husband Frank came to Calvary in May, 1926 and served 
on Calvary's council most of the thirty-three years between 1927 and 1959. After 
due consideration, it was decided that a portion of the principal be set aside to 
fund a Calvary Scholarship Fund for college-bound students. 

In early 1990, Council recognized the need for a Director of Christian 
Education. After several months' discussion, a job description was drawn up 
and an active search begun. However, since this was to be a part-time position, 
difficulty was encountered in finding the right person. Mrs. Debbie Wilkinson, 
then the part-time church secretary, became a full-time Lay Associate, along with 
her secretarial duties. Her duties continued as secretary and Director of Christian 
Education and Youth Ministry until August, 1995 when she left Calvary Church. 
It was not until September, 1996 when a Director of Christian Education, Mrs. 
Joyce Dayvault Williams was finally found and employed. 

In 1991 a trial was started to have youth members without voting privileges 
of the congregational council. A young lady and a young man, rising seniors 
in high school, were elected as "youth members". This experiment did not work 
out well, as these folks were obviously too occupied with school activities, so 
after only two years, it was abandoned. 

By the nineties, Calvary had become absolutely "land-locked" on its one 
and two-thirds acres on Lake Concord Road. Cramped for space for the size 
of its congregation, the church had no room to move into other ministries urgently 
needed and desired. At a called council meeting April 6, 1992, Mr. Robert Wall 
of the Cabarrus Hospital told council about the hospital's plans to build a parking 
mall, essentially around the church. He indicated that the hospital would be 
interested in acquiring the property if Calvary were ever inclined to relocate. 
By September, 1992, council was actively engaged in getting property appraisals 
and seeking information on costs of further renovations of the existing building, 
trying to cover any contingencies. In may, Pastor Boyd asked council for a May 
meeting of the congregation to approve looking for a new site for Calvary and 
come back with a decision on renovating or moving. 

In making plans to further the renovation or relocation of the church, 
it was felt by all that Calvary needed to become debt-free in order to expedite 
those plans. August 21, 1993 was designated as kick-off date for a debt 
elimination drive. By using available funds in various funds and special gifts 
from all congregational members and other various fund raisers, including a 
"FUN(d) FEST" yard sale, this was accomplished in only two months by December 

14 Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church 

29, 1993. Calvary was now prepared to move forward with a plan that was to 
become "Venture in Faith." 

At the 1994 Annual Congregational meeting, by a vote of 106 for to 28 
opposed, the congregation voted to forge ahead with investigating relocation of 
the church. 

Calvary was proud and excited to accept a gift from the Love sisters (Betty 
L. Baker and Martha L. Cline) of 5.65 acres of land at the corner of Branchview 
(NC Rte. 136) and Bradley, who made the offer to sell another seven adjoining 
acres to the church in December 1995. At a congregational meeting on December 
31st congregation agreed to ratify an agreement to purchase the seven- acre tract 
for $700,000.00. 

As noted on page 9, at the time that the new church was built on Lake 
Concord Road, they obtained and installed the bell that originally was in the tower 
at Mount Pleasant Collegiate Institute in Mount Pleasant. Hearing of the plans 
of Calvary to possibly relocate, in April, 1996, the Eastern Cabarrus Historic 
Association, now owners of the old MPCI premises and operators of the Eastern 
Cabarrus History Museum, contacted Calvary to ask that if they had plans to 
dispose of that bell, to please give them first chance on obtaining it to restore 
it to its original location. 

Great things were happening during 1996. At a congregational meeting 
on May 19, Council was authorized to exercise the option on the additional seven 
acres of land at the proposed new church site, arranging whatever financing might 
be necessary. To show solidarity, the vote was 92 for and only 1 1 against. Then 
only three weeks later, congregation voted to extend a call for part-time Director 
of Christian Education, Joyce Dayvault Williams. Here, again, congregation 
demonstrated its solidarity in a vote of 89 for and only 8 against. Mrs. Williams 
began her work July 3rd and was commissioned at the Fall Festival (Annual 
Homecoming) October 29th by Assistant to the NC Lutheran Bishop and former 
Calvary pastor Rev. Dr. Leonard H. Bolick. 

A number of committees were set up to carefully investigate apace and 
other requirements for a new church to assist Griffin and Associates, Architects, 
in preparing plans for such a new church. This information will also be helpful 
in negotiating with any prospective buyer of the old property in assessing a fair 
cost of relocation. 

In addition to all the activity with plans for a new church building, adding 
a DCE and all the other things in 1996, the congregation was thoroughly delighted 
when, on November 2, their former minister, Rev. Dr. Leonard H. Bolick was 
elected to a six-year term as Bishop of the North Carolina Synod, ELCA. t

Into the Future 

by David Harold Black 

The Future Committee was formed in 1995 to assist the Long Range 
Planning Committee and Church Council in the investigation and evaluation of 
various scenarios concerning further renovation and/or relocation of the Church 

The committee identified numerous potential sites for relocation, and 
after extensive study and deliberation, recommended the purchase of a 12.65 acre 
tract on Branchview Drive so as to insure that the congregation would have a 
site to build on. The committee recommended relocation as opposed to renovation 
primarily due to the lack of land at the present site. It was determined that the 
present property should be marketed for sale, and the committee has been involved 
in negotiations with Cabarrus Memorial Hospital since mid- 1995. It is believed 
that the hospital is the most potential purchaser. 

In order to provide the committee with a realistic view of costs associated 
with potential site development and new church construction, a building advisory 
committee was formed in 1996 to plan a new facility on the Branchview Drive 
site. This initial phase of this process has been completed, with costs estimate 
of $4.2 to $4.5 million dollars, including the land. 

It is anticipated that the proposed future church would include a child-care 
facility, a large fellowship area with a stage, outdoor play areas for small children 
as well as an athletic field for older youth, an on-site picnic shelter, and other 
wooded recreational areas. 

The committee believes that relocation is essential to ensure the continued 
growth and vitality of our congregation. We must be in a position to offer programs 
within our rninistry that allow us to meet the needs of both present and potential 
members. We must have room for further growth and expansion in the future, 
and must be able to provide a safe place for our children to play. We believe 
that the proposed structure and site plan will meet these needs in a positive way, 
and when built, will position Calvary so as to be able to expand and build on 
its ministries well into the next century and beyond, t

26 Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church 


Calvary has owned at least four parsonages during its eighty -odd years of 
service. In the council minutes of April 14, 1916, there is a note that 
"In regard to lot for parsonage", was laid over. Due to lack of minutes 
for some time thereafter, we do not know where that lot was or what became 
of it. Calvary must have had a parsonage, however, for during 1917 and 1918 
are mentions of "our part" of a "garage account", which was paid off in the report 
of August 1 8, 19 1 8. It is possible the church shared a parsonage with St. Andrews. 
It is also obvious that a parsonage was owned in 1920. When Rev. Day resigned 
and Calvary was looking for a new pastor, Day was to be offered free use of 
the parsonage. Also noted is that the called meeting of the council and building 
committee meeting of May 4, 192 1 was held at the parsonage. The next parsonage 
purchased in 1923, the J. V. Stiller property, was next door to the original church 
on Buffalo Street. From council minutes, it is evident that this house was aged 
and inadequate; eventually the pastor moved to a rented home on Georgia Avenue 
in November, 1947, until the church purchased another home at 163 N. Church 
St. The final parsonage owned by Calvary was built on Scenic Drive, near the 
church, in late 1955 and used through the tenure of Pastor W. N. Yount and into 
the pastorate of Rev. L. H. Bolick, when it was sold and funds invested to provide 
a "Living Allowance" to Calvary's pastors to provide their own home. 

During the period before construction of the original church building 
of 1920 and 192 1, it was obvious from the minutes existing that Calvary did have 
a parsonage, possibly the one on Buffalo Street. Particularly noted from extant 
minutes is the fact that the congregation built a garage at the parsonage. 

Again, in November, 1923, for probably this same building, Mr. John 
Query was paid $417.66 for some repairs, and in December, the congregation 
bought a range and installed it in the parsonage. 

In August, 1928, during the vacancy between Rev. Kester and Rev. Speagle, 
the parsonage was painted "insides and out". 

From time to time after that, various problems came before council, such 
as roof repair, water pipe leaks, etc. 

The only accounting available for 1936 was noted in the February, 1937 
minutes in which there were repairs made during 1936 on the church and parsonage. 
$13.05 was paid in church repairs from the current fund and $42.31 on the 
parsonage, paid by the "Parsonage Rent Account". The reader is to draw his 
own conclusion as to whether the pastor was still living in the church's parsonage. 
Also noted in the April, 1937 minutes that the council decided to "let the financial 
secretaries look after repairing the parsonage". 

On September 2, 1940, it was agreed to install hot water in the parsonage. 

Almost no mention was further made relating to the parsonage until July, 

Concord, North Carolina — 1913-1996 27 

1947 when it is noted in council minutes that "There was no report from any 
member as to getting a new parsonage". In August J. M. Ridenhour was charged 
with looking into selling the old parsonage. In September, Pastor Cobb announced 
that he had found an available, suitable house on Georgia Avenue, and council 
agreed to rent it as soon as renovations had been made for a parsonage. 

September 28, 1947 the congregation voted against selling the old parsonage 
by 56 to 27. Accordingly, in November, council voted to let the property committee 
rent the old parsonage. At the same time, they recommended to the congregation 
that they buy or build a new parsonage and that the funds be taken from the 
building fund. Meanwhile, it was agreed to rent Miss Eugenia Lore's house on 
Georgia Avenue for a parsonage. Transferring building funds to a parsonage 
fund was defeated by a congregational vote. However, in a December meeting 
of the congregation, a slim majority of 22 to 17 voted for the resolution. Council 
decided that this was too slim a margin, in consideration that there were some 
70 voting members present at the meeting, and called for another vote at a future 
meeting. At the subsequent meeting later in the month, congregation first voted 
34 to 11 to build or buy a new parsonage, then voted 38 to 6 to transfer building 
funds to a parsonage fund. By this time, the fund was at $4,632.15. 

At the congregational meeting on February 27, 1949, a house was accepted 
for #7,300.00 at 163 North Church Street (From the Williams Estate). In April 
council acted to advise Miss Lore that Pastor Cobb would vacate her house on 
May 1st, but at a council meeting on May 1st, Pastor Cobb resigned the pastorate 
and lived in the new parsonage but briefly. 

Troubles were not over yet with the old parsonage. Even after the coming 
of Rev. Glenn Barger, it is noted in the September, 1949 minutes that the rent 
was past due on that building and needed looking into. 

Finally, in March, 1951 it was proposed by the property committee that 
the old parsonage be sold for removal and the lot leveled and planted in grass. 
In April it was decided to turn the sale over to E. Johnston Irvin, an attorney. 

Meanwhile, trouble was developing at the "new" parsonage on Church 
Street It developed that Mrs. Walter P. Ritchie, a neighbor on Union Street 
might either desire to purchase it or close a driveway through it to the rear of 
her property. By August 1951, council made her an offer of $250.00 for the 
right of way and were given authority to go as high as $500.00. When approached, 
Mrs. Ritchie asked them what they would take for the property, and when Calvary 
offered it to her for $12,000.00, she said she would think about it. In March, 
1954, she came back expressing interest in buying the parsonage, but no agreement 
was reached at that time, but later that month it was offered to her for $ 1 1 ,000.00. 
She came back with an offer of $8,000.00. Council decided to let "Lawyer Cruse" 
[Bernard W. Cruse, Sr.] go and find out what could be done about the driveway. 
In April "Miss" Ritchie agreed to sell the right-of-way for $500.00. Council 
recommended to the congregation that we buy, and they concurred, but at that 
point she refused to sell at any price and appointed "Lawyer Blackwelder" [Buford 

28 Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church 

Blackwelder] to handle any legal action concerning the driveway. At a called 
meeting of the congregation on May 9, she had agreed to sell her right-of-way 
for $750.00. The congregation agreed to pay it, whereupon Spencer Atwell, who 
was serving as chairman of the negotiating committee, immediately went over 
and gave her $5.00 before she could change her mind. Evidently "Lawyer 
Blackwelder" felt some remorse over the whole deal, for he made a $50.00 donation 
to the church [which was probably his fee]. In September, 1955 the property 
was sold to a Mrs. Ollie Brantley for $7,000.00. 

At the same time that the parsonage was on North Church Street, the 
property Committee was told to look for a lot on which to build a new parsonage. 

Shortly afterward, the Property Committee found a lot that was suitable 
to council on Scenic Drive, not too far from Calvary. Mr. Frank M. Cline was 
chosen as builder to build the new parsonage. Finally, in late 1955, Pastor and 
Mrs. Yount moved into the new parsonage. The parsonage at 308 Scenic Drive 
was finished and occupied by Rev. and Mrs. Yount in January, 1956. 

In November, 1958 the odd 60'x75' lot behind the parsonage was purchased 
and added to the original lot. After a complaint from the neighbor to the rear 
of the parsonage, Mr. Irvin, about water runoff onto his property from the 
parsonage, Calvary offered to sell him the 60'x75' lot for $200.00. 

At the conclusion of Rev. Yount's pastorate at the beginning of 1972, 
since the pulpit was vacant, he and Mrs. Yount were given permission to remain 
in the parsonage until their new home was completed. After they moved, a survey 
was made of the parsonage and a complete redecorating, re-roofing, replacing 
the sidewalk and installing central air conditioning was done before the arrival 
of Rev. Bolick. 

At a Congregational Meeting on May 16, 1976, it was voted to sell the 
parsonage and place any funds received into a fund to provide a "Living Allowance" 
for the pastor rather than provide a pasonage for his use. This was regarded as 
a much more viable arrangement for both the congregation and the pastor, as 
it would reduce somewhat the expense of furnishing and maintaining a home 
for the pastor while allowing the pastor to provide and acquire equity in his own, 
more suitable, home, t

Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church 

Sunday School 

From the beginning, Calvary has had a strong Sunday School. Condensed 
from the writings of the original organization of Calvary "The success of 
the Sunday School was assured from the start. The attendance was fine; 
the teachers and officers were enthusiastic; the whole school evinced an earnestness 
and devotion that was inspiring. A goodly number of Sunday School Hymnals 
of the United Synod were received, Augsburg Lesson Helps provided; and every 
effort made to equip the school with whatever working material was needed. 
The following were the first teachers in the school: Primary Department, Mrs. 
C. A. Isenhour, Mrs. H. B. Wilkinson and Mrs. J. W. Roberts; Intermediate 
Department, G. W. Petrea, C. A. Isenhour, Miss Zula Patterson, James C. 
McEachern; Adult Classes, W. A. Welshman 29 and Lewis O. Blackwelder". 

On December 15, 1918 council decided to let the Sunday School elect 
its own officers. 

Following are names of some of the officers, teachers and musicians gleaned 
from existing council minute books and annual directories. Admittedly, they

Men's Organizations 

Existing are microfilm records and a minute book covering the period from 
August, 1924 through August, 1931 of the Lutheran Brotherhood, the 
men's organization previous to the present-day Lutheran Men in Mission. 
On the local level, this was a group devoted to raising funds for purposes not 
ordinarily taken care of through offerings and regular budget; providing ushering 
and maintenance duties and such, and on the Synodical level, raising funds toward 
the extension of God's Kingdom, such as helping to finance new churches and 
helping churches in need, t

The first minutes reported that a meeting was held on August 17, 1924 
for the purpose of "Organizing a Brotherhood". Initial officers are recognized 
below. The first group had 2 1 members. 

36 Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church 

In the Brotherhood report for 1946, president Sidney Basinger reported 
that they had a very good and active year. They had meetings honoring the 
servicemen in the organization, a ladies' night, and a special meeting recognizing 
the Boy Scouts, whom they sponsored. That year they responded 100% to the 
Loan and Gift Fund, with contributions from every member amounting to $1 15.00, 
ending the year in helping some needy people with gifts of food and so on. 

On May 25, 1947, council approved the transfer of $750.00 from the 
Sunday School Treasury to the Brotherhood to complete the construction of a 
Boy Scout Building. 

In 1958 the Brotherhood became The Men of the Church, but in 1959 
they were termed "United Lutheran Church Men." 

Resolution of the council at their meeting January 20, 1964: Now therefore, 
be it resolved that the Church Council of Calvary Lutheran Church, approve of 
the Lutheran Church men soliciting funds for the Loan and Gift Fund from members 
of the congregation on an individual basis, in such a way that it does not conflict 
with the regular budget of the church. 

Sometime between 1964 and 1971 the organization name was changed 
from the Lutheran Brotherhood to Lutheran Church Men. 

The Southern District of Lutheran Church Men held a supper meeting 
at Calvary October 17, 1971. 

No minutes are presently available from the above time until January 
27th, 1985 when 14 members met at the home of Herb Eckenrhode. Evidently 
until about that time it was common practice to hold meetings either at one of 
the men's homes or at one of the local restaurants. At least by August, they started 
regularly holding their meetings in the Yount Fellowship Hall at the church. 

From available minutes, the first annual fish fry was sponsored September 
28, 1985 and has been a regular event since that time. Profits from this event 
have been used to sponsor annual trips of the Confirmand Classes to Lutheridge 
and to make regular contributions to the North Carolina Lutheran Men Loan and 
Gift Fund. Through this regular event, Calvary has remained in the top three 
among North Carolina congregations in donations to the Loan and Gift Fund. 
Some of the most active "Fish fryers" over recent years have been Harold Black, 
Odell Garmon, Dave Ireland, Bill Wiles, Paul Wynnk and Harold Yost. Another 
contributing factor to Calvary's standing in the gifts to the Loan and Gift fund 
is the "Extra Miler" program started in the late 80s and early 90s. An "Extra 
Miler" is a member who contributes an extra $ 100 annually just for this purpose. 
Of approximately 40 Extra Milers in the State, 8 are from Calvary. The fish 
fry also has sponsored at least thirty-three life memberships from Calvary men 
in the North Carolina Lutheran Men in Mission. The date for the annual fish 
fry was changed to May in 1987 and was held annually in the spring until 1996 
when it was changed back to the fall because in the meantime several noteworthy

In November, 1985 the annual convention of the North Carolina Lutheran 
Men was held at the Parkwood Baptist Church, sponsored by Calvary's Lutheran 
Men. Calvary youth made a NCLM banner for this occasion, and the ladies 
prepared a lunch for the Executive Board. 

Harry Blume, long active in Calvary's and the state Lutheran Men and 
Lutheran Men in Mission was installed as the North Carolina state Lutheran Men 
in Mission President in late 1988 and served two terms in that capacity. 

In 1988, through the principal efforts of Ray Dobelstein, Calvary Men 
in Mission took over the Adopt-A-Highway project to help keep a mile of NC 
136 (Branchview Drive) cleaned up and that project has continued to this day. 

In the April, 1989 minutes is the first notation of a Picnic Outing sponsored 
by the Lutheran Men which has become an annual event held at Frank Liske 
Park. This continues and extends their tradition of golf and fishing outings and 
the annual fish fry and highway cleanup. 

During 1994 Calvary's Men in Mission raised over $3,000 and participated 
in the building of Cabarrus County's 15th Habitat for Humanity house. Another 
house was completed in November, 1996. These houses were joint efforts of 
most of the Lutheran churches in Cabarrus County. 

In latter 1996, Harold Yost was elected State President of North Carolina 
Lutheran Men in Mission, t

Women's Organizations 

he council minutes of a called meeting on May, 6, 1930 mentions the 
Ladies Aid Society and their request (which was apparently accepted) 
to furnish the Chancel of the Church. In August, 1933, the Ladies Aid 
Society was approved to have painting done on the outside of the church. 

By 1946, it was the Ladies Aid and Missionary Societies. In their report 
for that year they reported 34 members in the Missionary Society and 39 in the 
Ladies Aid. 

According to the annual 1956 report and 1957 directory, The United 
Lutheran Church Women had four circles meeting monthly in the homes of the 
members. In 1958 Mrs. Van Scott was Treasurer. 

With Doris Smith as Circle Leader, the Morning Circle began meetings 
in 1984. And with Pat Schaening as Circle Leader, the Evening Circle began 
meeting in 1985. for "younger women." During 1985 the Morning Circle took 
the name "Mary Martha Circle" and the Monday Evening Circle became the 
"Shepherdess Circle" and the Tuesday Evening Circle became the "Friendship 
Circle." Friendship disbanded in 1995.

Music and Choirs 


irst noted mention in the council minutes of a Choir Leader was at their 
meeting in February, 1930, when Miss Grace Ridenhour was appointed 
to serve out the remainder of 1930, making it evident that there was a 
choir leader before then. 

Paul B. Cobb, as director of the Church Choirs, presented a report at the 
end of 1946 in which he mentioned the formation of a Junior Choir in the latter 
part of 1945 which made great progress during 1946, consisting of 15 high school 
people. The Junior Choir received beautiful new robes during 1946 from the 
ladies of the church which were used for the first time at Easter. Well received 
were two programs by the Senior Choir during the year, one on Good Friday; 
a musical setting to our Lord's Words on the Cross and the other on the last Sunday 
before Christmas of various Christmas music. Martha Lou Faggart was organist 
at that time. 

After several attempts to sell the old pump organ in the assembly room 
it was finally sold in June, 1970 and funds applied to painting the parsonage. 

At a called meeting of the council in September, 1971, Miss Becky Untz 
was engaged as organist and Mrs. George L. Barrier as choir director. 

Due to incomplete existing records, there are obviously many who have 
served the church as organists who have not been picked up in a search of those 
records existing, f

"The Carilloneurs" 

Handbells were ordered from Malmark in May, 1983. In September the 
first Handbell Choir was organized under the direction of Ken Young. 
Initially, there were eleven members: Susan Meyer, Nell Tarlton, Deb 
Hatley, Kathy Schiele, Ric Stames, Julie Starnes, Vicki Bamhardt, Carolyn 
Doll, Kathi Hissong, Goldia Cruse and Nancy Haney. 

The first performance was given during the Christmas Cantata December 
18, 1983. 

In February, 1992 Vivian Howard became the interim director after Ken 
Young's resignation. She served until May, 1992 when Mike Pittard became 

In November, 1996 the new name of the Adult Handbell Choir became 
"The Carilloneurs." t 

The Youth Tone Chime Choir 

The Youth Tone Chime Choir was organized in April, 1995 after a three - 
octave set of chimes were given to Calvary Church by Robert and Nancy 
Haney. The first choir was comprised of six youths in grades two through 
eight who first performed in May, 1995 before the congregation after 
only four practices. 

In September, 1995 practice resumed for the school year with ten players 
in grades three through eight. They performed several times during that year. 

By the fall of 1996 the choir had grown to twenty members and an extra 
octave of chimes had to be ordered to accomodate the size of the group, t 

Concord, North Carolina — 1913-1996 47 



he 1957 Annual Report to the congregation stated that during 1956, under 
the able direction of Mrs. J. R. Shive, the kindergarten had an enrollment 
of eight, meeting Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. 

In March, 1955, approval was given by council to organize a kindergarten 
if details could be worked out. 

The 1956 Congregational Report and 1957 Directory reported that the 
kindergarten was maintained under the able direction of Mrs. J. R. Shive with 
an enrollment of 8 children. 

In its third year in 1958 and its fourth year in 1959, the Kindergarten was 
still under the direction of Mrs. J. R. Shive. 

In August, 1961, Mrs. Shive, Kindergarten director was given permission 
to erect, at her own expense, a chain-link fence on the lawn at the back side of 
the church next to the parking lot. 

Calvary Lutheran Kindergarten began in September of 1963 with Mrs. 
Betty Black as director. Prior to that time, a community kindergarten was operated 
in the church building. The director of this kindergarten moved it to her home 
beginning with the school year of 1963. 

The first year's enrollment consisted of one class in the five year old age 
group. A four year old group was added the next year. Due to the large number 
of applicants a second five year old age group was added. The teaching staff 
consisted of the director and three assistants and extra help as needed. The peak 
enrollment was forty-eight students. 

The kindergarten was absolutely self -supported, even from time to time 
making then substantial contributions to the church current fund, as noted in a 
number of Sunday bulletins during the mid sixties. 

March 21, 1966, Mrs. Harold (Betty) Black was again appointed teacher 
of the Calvary Kindergarten for the school year 1966-67 and Mrs. Carl Hatley 
as assistant. Then on July 27, 1967, when Mrs. Harold Black was again appointed 
teacher, Mrs. Betty Boykin was named as her assistant. 

Mrs. Carrie Bamhardt and Mrs. Margaret Noblitt served as kindergarten 
treasurers. This was a self-supporting kindergarten that made a monthly contribution 
to the church budget. Supplies used were purchased with money generated by 
the kindergarten. In addition, kindergarten funds provided for the carpeting on 
both stairways, cabinets in the class rooms and playground equipment. 

In January, 1972, council approved the re-appointment of then-existing 
officers and teachers of the kindergarten and continued its work for another year. 

48 Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church 

By 1974, Pastor Leonard Bolick reported in the annual directory that the 
kindergarten had forty-eight pupils in the hands of four capable teachers. Director 
was Mrs. Betty Black. 

The kindergarten closed in 1975 when the state of North Carolina began 
a compulsory kindergarten program in the public schools, t 

Luther League 

At the end of 1946, the first report was officially presented on the Luther 
League, reporting on the "Luther League Review" Campaign. During 
the year Leaguers attended the Annual District Meeting and a Musical 
Festival, had 5 guest speakers, presented 4 public programs, conducted the annual 
"Penny Drive" and sent two representatives to the 25th Annual Convention of 
the Luther League of North Carolina. 

In August, 1951 Walter Drury appeared before council to ask that the 
Luther League be allowed to paint the hut, also that the Luther League be allowed 
to have square dances in the hut. The council approved painting the hut, and 
disapproved holding square dances.

Scouting Programs 

irst mention of the Boy Scouts in council minutes was May 5, 1946 when 
D. L. McEachern requested $50.00 be transferred from the Sunday school 
treasury to the Scout program. 

D. L. McEachern's report to the congregation at the beginning of 1947 
reported that: "On August 31, 1945, our Boy Scout troop was organized, and 
chartered under the laws of Congress with 8 Scouts, 5 Troop Committeemen, 
and 2 Scoutmasters. Of these 8 Charter Scouts 1 was registered as 1st. class, 
3 as 2nd. class and 4 as tenderfoot. When our charter was renewed on August 
31, 1946, we registered 16 Scouts, 5 Troop Committeemen, and 3 Scoutmasters. 
Of the 16 Scouts re-registered at the beginning of our second year 2 have now 
attained the rank of Star Scout, 8 have reached 2nd. class and the remaining 6 
are still in the tenderfoot rank" 

In February, 1949, Cecil Funderburke was mentioned as an Assistant 
Scoutmaster of the troop. 

In August, 1950, it was agreed to let the Boy Scouts assist in ushering 
to earn credits on their Pro Deo Et Patria award (highest scouting award). 

David L. McEachern was mentioned in the July 8, 1951 Bulletin as 
Scoutmaster. He was still serving according to the Bulletin of January 27, 1952. 

A Pro Deo Et Patria application was filed for Wayne Ridenhour at the 
council meeting May 23, 1954. 

In the 1957 Church Directory, we note that Scouting was still active, for 
the treasurer's reports shows a total of receipts and prior balance total of $80.02 
and they ended up the year with a balance reported by Treasurer S. C. Atwell 
of $23.02 on hand. Scoutmaster was C. B. Funderburke and T. S. Brown was 
assistant. S. C. Atwell was Treasurer. In Cub Scout activities, the Sunday Bulletin 
of August 19, 1956 reported that Mr. H. L. Grimmett had accepted the position 
of Cub Master. 

The page with Boy Scout activities is missing from the 1958 Directory

that we used, but the financial report for that year (1957) shows that they had 
eight registrations and seven subscriptions to Boys Life, the Boy Scout official 
magazine and ended up the year with a small balance of $6.69 in the treasury. 

In the Directory for 1959, Pastor Yount reported that the Boy Scout Troop, 
the Cub Scout Troop and a Girl Scout Troop were active, but we had lost our 
Brownie Troop due to lack of a leader, but in 1960 he reported that the Boy Scout 
Troop and the Brownies were both active. In Sunday's Bulletin of September 
6, 1959, Mrs. William R. Arey and Mrs. Robert Bailey were named leaders of 
the Brownies. 

In the Sunday Bulletin of May 22, 1960, it was reported that Walter 
Goodnight was elected Scoutmaster and T. S. Brown as Assistant of the Boy 

The Sunday, March 12, 1961 Bulletin reported that Mrs. T. C. Honeycutt 
and Mrs. John Boger, Jr. were leader and assistant leader of the Girl Scout Troop 
and Mrs. Robert E. Barnhardt and Mrs. Johnsie Scott leader and assistant of the 

There is no mention of Scouting in the 1961 Directory, but in 1962 (for 
1961) S. C. Atwell reported eight Mens' Registrations, nine Scout Magazines 
and ten Boys' Registrations. In the June 17, 1962 Sunday Bulletin, it was reported 
that Richard Shaw was elected Scoutmaster and Jack Stroud assistant. 

In the Sunday bulletin of November 1 1, 1962, with leadership by Mrs. 
T. C. Honeycutt, Mrs. Buell Little, Mrs. Wallace Early, Mrs. Sidney Perry and 
Mrs. Kent Prewitt, Calvary boasted the largest Girl Scout Troop in the city with 
32 members in No. 1 and 21 in No. 2, for a total of 53 members. Also Calvary 
had a Brownie Troop of 17, making a total of 70 girls served in Scouting at Calvary 
with Mrs. David Lockhart and Mrs. Robert Striker as leaders. 

In the 1963 Directory, there is also no report on Scouting other than a 
report by S. C. Atwell of total receipts during 1962 of $34.84 and an ending balance 
of $6.13. There is no indication as to the size of the Troop. 

The Sunday bulletin of November 8, 1964 recognized the leaders then 
of the Brownies as Mrs. R. B. Watkins, Jr. and Mrs. A. W. Widenhouse, Jr. 
Leaders for Troop 23 were Mrs. R. C. Richardson and Mrs. Morris Talton and 
for Troop 77 were Mrs. Ben Flowe and Mrs. David Lockhart. The bulletin for 
March 7, 1965 reported that Mrs. R. B. Rankin, Jr. had joined as leader of the 
Brownies while Mrs. Widenhouse continued and the other leaders of Troop 23 
and Troop 77 continued. March 6, 1966 saw the addition of Mrs. Phylis Andrews. 
On March 10, 1968, the name of Mrs. Robert Sumner was added as another leader 
who had served "through the years". 

In March of 1974 the Boy Scouting program was rejuvenated through 
the efforts of Harold Yost as Scoutmaster with Robert Haney as Assistant 

52 Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church 

Scoutmaster, and Clark Howard leading the troop committee. The troop started 
with four boys and eventually grew to a total of 12 boys. 

The troop was very active and participated in many district camporees, 
council camporees, the annual Concord district scout show, and spent a week 
at Camp John J. Barnhardt each summer. In addition they earned troop camping 
awards and patches by camping at historical parks and hiking historical trails. 

However in early 1978 the troop was disbanded due to being reduced 
to a total of four boys and because of the absence of potential scouts in the 
neighborhood and at Calvary. All four of the boys transferred to Troop 600 where 
they all continued their scouting adventures. This included attending National 
Jamborees, going to Philmont (the national scout ranch at Cimmaron, New Mexico) 
and advancing in rank with one, Mark Yost, achieving his Eagle rank and receiving 
the Pro Deo et Patria award on August 20th. The Council at Calvary allowed 
Mark to supervise the painting of several rooms at the church (by other scouts) 
as a part of fulfilling the requirements for earning his Eagle. 

The equipment was turned over to the Concord district to be used by other 
troops that needed it, and the remainder of the funds in the Scout treasury were 
turned over to Youth Ministry. 

Harold Yost and Robert Haney continued in scouting by serving as assistant 
scoutmasters at Troop 600 for many years. In addition both Harold and Robert 
were active in the Order of the Arrow, and both served on many occasions as 
staff members for district and council adult leadership training courses, with Harold 
being the course director for a training course for new scoutmasters. Robert served 
as chapter advisor for the local OA chapter for a number of years. Harold attended 
Woodbadge, and served as assistant scoutmaster for one of the two troops that 
the council sent to the 1982 National jamboree. In addition, both Robert and Harold 
were leaders on council trips to Philmont. Both have served, and Harold still serves, 
on the Concord district Eagle review board. 

Other men in Calvary have served in various capacities with other troops 
in the years after Calvary's troop dissolved, and some of our youth have earned 
their Eagle rank as a member of those troops. It is hoped that sometime in the 
not too distant future that an active scouting program for both boys and girls 
can be reestablished at Calvary, t

he first note in the minutes of apportionment or benevolence was at the 
meeting of council in April 1913, when Calvary agreed to pay its 
apportionment of $44.20. In 1919, this had increased to $166.00 for the 
N. C. Synod and the United Synod. 

Concord, North Carolina — 1913-1996 53 

On January 5, 1942 council agreed to transfer $58.50 from the benevolence 
fund to current to start off the year with a clean slate, and also to pay our balance 
to the orphan home, seminary and the Lowman Home. 

In March, 1945 council voted to pay benevolence in full in a lump sum. 

In December, 1949, it was agreed to pay benevolence in full at the first 
of the year, rather than in quarterly installments, as a surplus existed in the current 

The August 5, 195 1 council meeting approved paying benevolence in full. 

The December 1954 council ruled to apply the Christmas Day offering 
and the loose change from the following Sunday, if needed, to finish the 
benevolence payment. The Sunday Bulletin of January 9, 1955 reported that 

Council passed a motion in November, 1955 to have an altar offering on 
Christmas Eve to pay off benevolence. 

At a called meeting on January 6, 1957, there was a balance in the 
Benevolence Treasury of $468.74. It was decided to give $150.00 to Holy Trinity 
Church in Raleigh and give the balance to the emergency appeal of the N. C. 

At a called meeting Sunday, January 5, 1958, council agreed to authorize 
the treasurer to take whatever was necessary from the current fund (not to exceed 
$32.00) to pay our Covenent in full. 

In September, 1960, council earmarked Sunday School offering for the 
second Sunday in October to go to Lutheran Homes. 

In December, 1995, Calvary paid its Benevolence share to the N. C. Synod 
in full ($30,937.00) for the first time in over twenty years, t 


The beginning records are taken from the baptism logs in the existing Parish 
Register. Those marked with an asterisk (*) are entered on a later page, and were 
not done at Calvary, but entered as a record, probably on heresay. The editor

Beverly Hills Seniors 

t the September, 1971 meeting of council, it was announced that a Senior 
Citizens group would like to meet at our church, and was taken under 

There is not much written history of the Beverly Seniors available. 
By agreement, it is not a function of the church and draws no monetary support 
from Calvary. To the contrary, it is not unusual for the Beverly Seniors to make 
contributions to the church. 

Ruth Wynnk took over active charge of the group in 1987 with the 
assistance of her husband, Paul. With an average attendance of twenty to thirty, 
they introduced a monthly Bingo game for the group with "white elephant" prizes 
for each game. About fifteen people play the average Bingo game. 

On the third Wednesday of each month, the Seniors enjoy video movies 
accompanied with pop corn. Additionally, in recent years they have made many 
day trips to interesting places and events. Some of these trips have been to 
Shackley Springs, the magnificent Calvary Church in Charlotte, J.AA.R.S. Bible 
translators and aviation center in Union County, Old Salem (now Winston-Salem), 
annual WSOC Christmas parties, Lutheridge, annual trips in October to the North 
Carolina mountains for apples, Myrtle Beach and even trekked to Abbeville, GA 
for a play by bus. 

Some of the attendees at Beverly Seniors' meetings included Bill and 
Iris Arey, Agnes and Spencer Atwell, Annie Belle Basinger, John and Ollie Berry, 
Fess and Mary Black, Bill and Marge Cruse, Herb and Hazel Eckenrhode, Roy 
and Blanche Edsell, Annie Lee Faggart, Jones and Marge Freeze, Cecil and Janie

A meeting was called of the council on July 7, 1919 to discuss the gift 
of a lot "lying near the Gibson Mill". It was agreed to try to sell the 
lot for at least $ 150.00, and more if possible. In the minutes of September 
22, 1919, it was revealed that the lot "in the Wodsworth addition" sold 
for $125.00. 

On May 22, 1927 council met in called session "for the purpose as follows: To 
whom it may concern, We the Pastor and Council of Calvery [sic] Lutheran Church, 
Concord, N. C. do hereby certify that B. A. Miller is a member in good standing 

88 Calvery Evangelical Lutheran Church 

and of a good moral character." The minutes were signed by M. L. Kester, Pastor 
and F. E. Barnhardt, Secy. B. A. Miller had been a council person several times 
and was a council person many times after that date. 

Something not shown in Calvary's written records is that Herb and Hazel 
Eckenrhode furnished the cedar Christmas trees to decorate the chancel from 
their back yard for the first three years. 

In the minutes to the regular council meeting of November 22, 1966, it is incorrectly 
stated that mention was made that at the congregational meeting held on November 
1 3 for the first time there were no nominations (for council) from the floor. There 
were in fact at least seven times that no nominations were made from the floor 
by the congregation in previous years as noted in a study of previous minutes. 

The Sunday bulletin of August 27, 1972 announced the first issue of the monthly 
newsletter which became Rejoice was to be published September 6, 1972. 

On September 15, 1980, permission was given to Pastor McLaughlin's [sic] son 
[grandson] to use the fellowship hall for his parent's 50th wedding anniversary. 

At the October 15, 1989 meeting of Lutheran Men in Mission, motion was made, 
seconded and passed that Calvary's LMM would drop out of the state Adopt-A- 
Highway program if the KKK was allowed to participate. 

Herb Eckenrhode started the tradition of presenting all new members a lapel cross 

when he gave all the men at the men's prayer breakfast lapel crosses. Following 

that, he gave them to all the men in Calvary. Not to be out-done, the Women 

of the Church followed 

suit by giving them to all the ladies. Then tha pastor took over to present them 

to all new members. The tradition continues today, and yes, Herb is still furnishing 


Another cross that has been passed out to all Calvary people was started by Charles 
Tarlton when he presented aluminum about VA inches high crosses to everyone 
to be carried in pocket or purse. Many members still have Charles' crosses. 

Through the fifties and sixties frequent contributors to Calvary, in both cash and 
other gifts, were Major and Mrs. Roy Webster of Mt. Pleasant. Although never 
a member of Calvary, Major Webster and Rev. Yount were very close friends 
and Rev. Yount enjoyed the Websters' friendship throughout their lives. 

Interesting comments appear in the regular Sunday Bulletins from time to time 
and particularily during the tenure of Rev. Dr. Yount. For quite a few years after 
the new church was built on Lake Concord Road, the parking lot was not paved 
and then was not marked off into parking spaces. Quite regularily Pastor Yount 
reminded the people to observe some sort of proper parking to allow others to 
move in or out. Don't block the driveways. Don't park three deep, blocking 
the guy in the middle. And on and on. Someone must have stood in a pew at

some time, for he regularily remarked that that was a no-no. Another no-no 
was to put books away before final dismissal or to chatter to your neighbors when 
seated in the nave. You must observe reverent silence. 

Our ministers, by and large, have spoiled us trying to get the service over as soon 
as possible after noon, but there was one occassion when Pastor Yount had a 
lot to say. A remark was made from the choir that he overheard like "It's after 
twelve o'clock and he's still preaching." He promptly turned in the pulpit to 
the speaker and retorted "Yes, so-and-so, and I intend to finish!" There was only 
one Pastor Yount, and the mold was destroyed, t 


Calvery Evangelical Lutheran Church 

Roll of Members 

There are probably some duplications and many omissions in this list, for there 
are many records missing in the earlier years of Calvary Congregation. Many 
times it is difficult to determine the given name of women because they were 
not given in the older records; only by "Mrs." and the husband's given name 
or initials. Wherever practical, the editor has used editorial license to replace 
husbands' names or initials with the woman's given name when it is reasonably 
certain. Also, where a person was referred to by several different names and 
it is certain that it is the same person, the editor has combined to the most 
expressive, i. e., Sid Basinger, S. S. Basinger, Sidney Basinger, and Sidney Smith 
Basinger have all been combined under Sidney Smith Basinger, and similarly, 
Frank Barnhardt and F. E. Barnhardt have been combined under Frank E. Barnhardt. 
Names include baptized as well as confirmed members and have been gleaned 
from any available source, such as council minutes, baptism and confirmation 
records, Sunday school records, etc. Many dates of admission and deletion of 
membership are non-existent, so none have been given here as this is not intended 
to be a certification of membership dates. Included here are all names found, 
including cradle rolls and baptisms. There are also possibly names that were 
not actually members, due to uncertainty in the records. Also, where identified, 
ladies' names are followed in parentheses by their married name, causing some 
double-listing, t

The Chrismon Tree 

CHRISMON is a combination of parts 
of two words: CHRISt and 
MONogram. Chrismons were invented 
by Frances K. Spencer and were first used 
in the Lutheran Church of the Ascension, 
Danville, Virginia in 1957, who holds the 
Trade Mark and Copyright for them. All 
Chrismon ornaments are made in white and 
gold to symbolize the purity and majesty of 
the Son of God. We point to the Christ as 
the Light of the World by using tiny white 
lights on the tree. 32 

The Calvary Chrismon tree dates from its first erection in the chancel in 1969 
and has been proudly displayed every year since then, often with additional 
ornaments each year. All who participated in the first Chrismon tree are not 
remembered at this time, but they included Alice Ray Sloop, and Annie Belle 
Basinger as the co-ordinators. Each ornament is designed to portray a certain 
biblical reference, and Chrismons are not limited to the Christmas season. 
Chrismons are designed for Easter, Advent, Trinity and other seasons, as well 
as for such events as baptism and the Lord's Supper. 

Real trees were used for Calvary's Chrismon Tree until 1992 when an artificial 
fourteen foot high tree was purchased and used for the first time at the 
recommendation of the Fire Marshall, t

AUGUST 20, 1991 


We, baptized members of the Church of Christ, responding in faith to the call 
of the Holy Spirit through the Gospel, desiring to unite together to preach the 
Word, administer the sacraments, and carry out God's mission, do hereby adopt 
this constitution and solemnly pledge ourselves to be governed by its provisions. 
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. 

Chapter 1. 


C1.01. The name of this congregation shall be Calvary Evangelical Lutheran 

Church of Concord, North Carolina. 
CI. 02. For the purpose of this constitution and the accompanying bylaws, the 
Calvary congregation is hereinafter designated as "this congregation." 
CI. 03. This congregation shall be incorporated under the laws of the State of 
North Carolina. 

Chapter 2. 


C2.01. This congregation confesses the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

C2.02. This congregation confesses Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the Gospel 

as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. 

a. Jesus Christ is the Word of God incarnate, through whom everything 

was made and through whose life, death, and resurrection God 
fashions a new creation. 

b. The proclamation of God's message to us as both Law and Gospel 

is the Word of God, revealing judgment and mercy through 
word and deed, beginning with the Word in creation, continuing 
in the history of Israel, and centering in all its fullness in the 
person and work of Jesus Christ. 

c. The canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the 

written Word of God. Inspired by God's Spirit speaking through 

their authors, they record and announce God's revelation 

centering in Jesus Christ. Through them God's Spirit speaks 

to us to create and sustain Christian faith and fellowship for 

service in the world. 

C2.03. This congregation accepts the canonical Scriptures of the Old and New 

Testaments as the inspired Word of God and the authoritative source 

and norm of its proclamation, faith, and life. 

C2.04. This congregation accepts the Apostles', Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds 

as true declarations of the faith of this congregation. 
C2.05. This congregation accepts the Unaltered Augsburg Confession as a true 
witness to the Gospel, acknowledging as one with it in faith and doctrine 

126 Calvery Evangelical Lutheran Church 

all churches that likewise accept the teachings of the Unaltered Augsburg 

C2.06. This congregation accepts the other confessional writings in the Book 
of Concord, namely, the Apology of the Augsburg Confession, the 
Smalcald Articles and the Treatise, the Small Catechism, the Large 
Catechism, and the Formula of Concord, as further valid interpretations 
of the faith of the Church. 

C2.07. This congregation confesses the Gospel, recorded in the Holy Scriptures 
and confessed in the ecumenical creeds and Lutheran confessional 
writings, as the power of God to create and sustain the Church for 
God's mission in the world. 

Chapter 3. 

C3.01. All power in the Church belongs to our Lord Jesus Christ, its head. All 
actions of this congregation are to be carried out under his rule and 

C3.02. The Church exists both as an inclusive fellowship and as local 
congregations gathered for worship and Christian service. Congregations 
find their fulfillment in the universal community of the Church, and 
the universal Church exists in and through congregations. The 
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, therefore, derives its character 
and powers both from the sanction and representation of its 
congregations and from its inherent nature as an expression of the 
broader fellowship of the faithful. In length, it acknowledges itself 
to be in the historic continuity of the communion of saints; in breadth, 
it expresses the fellowship of believers and congregations in our day.
